Journeys in Darkness and Light explores two of my passions: movies and comics (graphic novels). In many of these discussions, I explore the spiritual nature of movies and comics through a Christian worldview. Let me say right up front that it is not my intention to “convert” anyone; that’s not my job. Yet I believe you can find many spiritual elements in both of these forms of artistic expression.
I also believe many creators are asking important questions through their works, seeking answers to questions that concern us all. Much of my decision to create such a blog is inspired by two books, Everyday Apocalypse by David Dark and Arts of Darkness: American Noir and the Quest for Redemption by Thomas S. Hibbs. Regardless of your religious, political or any other sort of worldview(s), I hope you find something of interest here.
